Bucket = BIG OPENING

Seriously, no faries needed. As long as the opening is big enough to pour a scoop of OxyClean in with hot water that thing will be spotless in no time with no scrubbing. A good rinse after and things are set for the next time. I mean, you can just watch that stuff work, nothing short of amazing.

Hmmmm! Good to know.

I still prefer my carboy fairies though.

For people that primary in carboys with krausen and hop residue, the same holds true?

Have you ever seen a carboy cleaning brush? Works slick as snot on a door knob!

I have one, but never oxyclean.

Cleaning krausen out of my bb 1 time with out oxyclean was enough for me.

Yes, I primary and Oxyclean. I just did a porter, added the hot water and Oxyclean once I washed the yeasties. The next day I rinsed it and things were spotless.

Anything will break if you're not careful. I've seen people break buckets.

Absolutely!

I just couldn't resist.

My 3 yr old can't break my bucket, glass isn't an option.

He could drown in a bucket though so carboy is clearly better because of anti-drowning abilities.
